VBB oil drain plug VBB150

Hi,i appear to have been a bit heavy handed when doing an oil change and must have stripped the thread on the oil drain plug as it doesn't seem to tighten up now.I have used some plumbers tape but still seems to be losing oil,has anyone got a cure for this they have used before? Thanks.


Sorry, plumber tape is useless (or any other stuff you can buy from the DIY market).

You have to repair the thread professionally.



I would recommend to pay a visit to a metal workshop or a well equipped motorcycle garage...they'd either cut a bigger thread instead of the broken one or maybe they implant a "helicoil" type of insert.
